High & Outside: A Baseball Noir

“Fast-paced, dark and gritty,” promises the Kickstarter campaign for the feature film “High & Outside”, a hardball story produced by John Cook and directed by Evald Johnson, son of big leaguer and Blue Jays manager Tim Johnson.  ”Keep it coming,” says Baseball Prospectus’s Kevin Goldstein of the funding for the independent film.  And no wonder, when it stars The Jesus Lizard / Scratch Acid frontman David Yow, whose pantsless work has been thrilling rock audiences around the world for decades.

But even if Kevin hadn’t highlighted the film on the Up and In Podcast’s 99th episode, I’d mention it here, because if David Yow’s involved, it seems to be my destiny to write about it.






Note: not to be confused with the (also) excellent documentary film of the same name about Bill “Spaceman” Lee.
